The Decipherment of Meroitic

I have deciphered all of the major Meroitic inscriptions. My articles on Meroitic have been published in many journals including the Meroitic Newsletter, which is a journal that publishes articles om Meroitic language.

Sorry I do not write or speak Arabic as well as I use too. Between 2004-2005 Dr. Osama Elnur, published several of my articles in ARKAMANI Sudan Electronic Journal of Archaeology and Anthropology. I do not know if the Arabic translation is fine because I can not read Arabic. These translations may  help you understand the vocabulary items I use to read Meroitic Inscriptions. If you want to discuss these terms I can only discuss them in English, as a result I provide the English and Dr. Elnur Arabic translations of my articles.
In 2004, my article MEROITIC EVIDENCE FOR A BLEMMY EMPIRE IN THE DODEKASCHOINS, was published by Osama Elnur in ARKAMANI Sudan Electronic Journal of Archaeology and Anthropology,    the paper was  Translated into Arabic by Osama Elnur see:
Osama Elnur also published my paper Meroitic Religion , in ARKAMANI  in both English and Arabic    Dr. Elnur also published the article in Arabic
